Eileen was a loving friend, daughter, sister, wife and mother. Her love shined it’s brightest as “Grandma”. You could always count on a hot cup of tea and western movie playing on the television while doing her current craft or quilting project. Eileen also enjoyed camping most of her life and taking rides in the country. Her love of children was so great that she became a foster parent for over 15 years. She was a bus driver for almost 40 years between Gorham, Westbrook, and Scarborough, Maine as well as Columbia, South Carolina. She enjoyed her job and looked forward to holidays and passing out treats to her school bus children. People never went hungry with Eileen, there was always enough and plenty of room at her table.

Eileen is survived by her children and their families; Cherylanne Dumont, and her three children, four grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren; Michael Currier, and his three children and five grandchildren; James Currier, and his daughter; Richard Currier, and his three daughters and nine grandchildren; Paul Hutton, and his four children and three grandchildren; Matthew Hutton, and his seven children and one grandchild, and Maryanne Alhamdany and her son. She is also survived by four brothers and three sisters. As well as all the friends of the family that called her ‘Mom”.

Eileen is predeceased by her parents, her step daughter, Diane Nicholson, her four previous husbands, Eugene Currier, Richard Hutton, Robert Milot, and Willard Ring.
